Point-To-Point Calls Using a Polycom VVX IP Phone and CyberData Device

Point-To-Point Calls Using a Polycom VVX IP Phone and CyberData Device

In a SIP point-to-point configuration, a Polycom VVX series IP phone running UC Software and CyberData device can place calls to each other on the same network without a SIP server.

 

CyberData Device Configuration

For your reference, instructions on point-to-point configuration are provided in the Operations Guide of every CyberData SIP-enabled device.  

To configure point-to-point on a CyberData device, log into the web interface and follow these steps:

1. Disable 'Register with a SIP server' on the SIP configuration page

2. Enter the IP address of the Polycom phone into the 'Dial Out Extension' field on the SIP configuration page for outbound dialing 

3. Save and Reboot to store changes

 

Polycom VVX Phone Configuration

No configuration changes are needed to enable Point-to-Point calls to a CyberData device.

 

Dialing from a Polycom VVX Phone

To dial the CyberData device from a Polycom phone, enter the IP address of the CyberData device using the phone's keypad.  Use the * key for the decimals in the IP address.  

For example, if the IP address of the CyberData device is 10.10.1.222, enter 10*10*1*222 into the keypad.  

Or, you can create a contact for the CyberData device and link it to a speed dial contact on the Polycom VVX phone.  You can use the phone's 000000000000-directory~.xml file to create a contact that will be accessible via a line key.  This file is available in the UC Software download package available from http://support.polycom.com/. See the Polycom administrator guide for your phone's UC Software version for more information about speed dial configuration.  

 

Polycom VVX phone tested using UC Software version 5.4.1.14510.

CyberData SIP Outdoor Intercom tested using firmware version 11.4.8.  Any CyberData SIP-enabled device can be configured in the same manner for point-to-point calls.
